We recently hosted a University IP Commercialisation virtual round table with a particular focus on university spin-out companies. Topics discussed included:
- Strategies for incentivising the spin-out management team;
- Protecting the university’s interest – shareholder arrangements and university involvement; and
- Applying revenue share policies to spin-outs
It was fantastic to see so many faces attend the event, albeit virtually – although hopefully in person soon, and we would like to give a special thank you to Richard Underwood, Managing Partner of niche corporate and commercial firm, Legal Clarity, who shared his expertise on the subject area.
We would also like to show our appreciation towards the attendees and their first-hand experiences and thoughts on the topics – as always we are fascinated by the variety of viewpoints expressed throughout the event and look forward to exploring other areas in future. The Burley Law team also offered perspectives from both IP and HR angles on the topics.
University IP Commercialisation will always be an important driver in the world of innovation as research unearths new theories and inventions, and we will delve deeper into key issues in future events.
If this is an area of law which interests you be sure to attend our next virtual round table which will be in February 2022 please follow us or get in touch email@example.com.
